Travis Shaw - Bass
Solid timing, Strong Rhythm, Heavy Tone
Born in Whitehorse, Yukon. Joe Dart fanboy. Once hit his own vehicle while driving his mother’s car.
“You miss 100% of the cars that aren’t parked behind you.”
Travis was the very first to respond to an online ad posted by the rest of the band in 2015, seeking a Bassist. Travis wouldn’t be moving to the province for a couple of months, so they went with somebody else who was interested, Who ultimately left the band shy of 2 years later. Days before that bass player quit, on the night of his last show with Madison Strip, a new bassist unknowingly showed up at the front of the stage, during the bridge of ‘Generation II Blame’ and enjoyed what he heard. It was Travis, and It wasn’t until after the show, when he was invited back to the band’s house, borrowed Jessaca’s bicycle to go to the store, and didn’t return because he had gotten horribly lost.. while Jessaca thought he had stolen it, and had all of Facebook out for blood until the next day trying to find out who he was, that they all realized their history. The timing could not have been more perfect.
Travis’ comedic sense of humour and easy-going wit are only the beginning, His funky slaps and head-bangin’ licks are just what the doctor ordered for Madison Strip.
